Dentonia reports Extension Of Tungsten Discovery - including 4.66kg/t tungsten over 4m

Dentonia Resources Ltd. ("the Company") is pleased to announce further assay results from a quartz-garnet (skarn tungsten) showing on the Knight Inlet Area Claims (see News Release dated June 22, 2009).  The samples were assayed by International Plasma Labs Ltd. of Richmond, BC.  The significant results of both chip-sampling programs are given in the table below.

Together with the previous results, the discovery has been extended from 22m to 32m with the following values:

1.314kg/t tungsten with 0.123% copper and 2.53g/t silver over 32m, including 4.66kg/t tungsten over 4m (16m – 20m).

Eleven additional chip samples, taken at 2m intervals, were collected under the supervision and control of James A. Turner, P.Geo.  Copper and silver were analyzed by the Fusion Induced Plasma Mult-acid (ICPM) Method and tungsten by the Fusion ICP Method.

The Company is pleased with these results and plan to:

·         Continue chip sampling along the discovery

·         Channel sample the 32m skarn

·         Carry out geological mapping of the discovery area

The current world price of WO3 concentrate is approximately US$25 per kilogram.  Tungsten is a hard, corrosive-resistant element with the highest melting point of all non-alloyed metals.  Tungsten and its alloys are used in high-temperature structural materials and many electronic applications.

Skarn Tungsten

"Almost 100% of Canadian tungsten production, which at one time constituted about 5% of the annual world production, has been derived from skarn deposits.  Skarns are the second most important type of economic tungsten deposit after vein-stockwork deposits, and account for an estimated 30% of total world production."
